    "The School and teachers are excellent. I didn't stay in the school but I saw that the conditions are good. I strongly reccommend this school because the teachers and the techniques they teach are amazing. We also did some activities together which create bonds between students. We went to meditate at sunset, admire the sunrise, watch pooja and special celebrations in very cool places. From what I browse in Rishikesh, this school practice the best prices with the best quality! Namaste."

    "Trip to Rishikesh was the best thing that happened in my life, and I would cherish the moments for the rest of my life. Teachers in yoga school were amazing, very competent, helpful and friendly. I was so pleased with the significant improvement of my yoga practice in a month time. It would not have been possible without great help and effort of all teachers, especially Yashpal and Rajesh. We learned a lot about Vedic philosophy. Teachers motivated us all the time to live a life with full consciousness and power of will. I would recommend Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga school to anyone who is looking for life changing spiritual experience in life. Intense yoga, great temples, riverside, delicious food, friendly people, rafting, Ayurvedic massage, astrologer, book shops are all incredible stuff you get to experience in Rishikesh. "

    "It was one of the best months in my life! I was surrounded with care, amazing people, spiritual atmosphere and of course YOGA! To be honest, I liked everything in this school!"

    "First of all I was really impressed by the team of our teachers (actual founders). They are soooo kind, full of yoga spirit, calm and patient. Program was well balanced between practice and theory classes, so we could understand the base of yoga philosophy, anatomy and of course meditation and mantra chanting. We lived in good rooms, they were clean and cozy, i really liked the design in the hotel. The meals were very very tasty, chef always tried to surprise us, tried to prepare something new, unusual for us. we spent month in family atmosphere, full of friendship, sun and joy. I think I've been to one of the best places all over the world, thanks to Rishikish Vinyasa school. I hope to come back) So, if I had to choose again, I wouldn't have a doubt! "

My concept of "yoga" was transformed from the Western physical activity to the spiritual Indian experience. It's a perfect introduction to the complex discipline that is Yoga--and it is explained in a friendly way. I would totally recommend this course to anybody who is interested in learning about the self and Indian culture. "

    "Are you looking for an "Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher training"?? Then Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School is for you!"


    "I ended up in this school after the school I already booked cancelled the course, and it was a fantastic surprise! Only one month before the beginning, I found myself with everything booked (planes, hotels, trains and more for a trip afterwards), a special permission at work... But no training! In the middle of Christmas I had to find a place to go in the very specific dates and with a programme that suited me!!! Now that everything is done I can say that I couldn't have been luckier!!!!"


    "Rishikesh vinyasa yoga school offers YTT focused on ashtanga vinyasa yoga style. I personally found the programme great and well balanced between all the theory classes and the yoga practice. One of the best things for a good learning experience was the fact that the group is very very reduced, this allowed us to have the best attention in every class. The teachers and actual founders of the school were simply amazing! Very kind, calm, experienced and full of patience. They made us feel at home since the very first minute, actually, on Sundays they took us out to different places so we could enjoy like a family day all together!! Thanks to all the teachers, specially to Yash, I'll never forget your classes! "


    "It is located in upper Tapovan, on the opposite side of Laxshman Jhula, this gave us the opportunity of living in a peaceful area within 10-15' walk from all the hustle and bustle of town. The place is basically a big house with 2-3 rooms for the Ayurvedic clinic, 7 bedrooms, the yoga hall, kitchen and eating area, garden and a roof top terrace (which I used a lot!). The rooms with ensuite bathroom are very spacious and clean. Vegetarian meals are also served in the school and they are absolutely DELICIOUS!! (we used to compliment the chef after every single one). Another very helpful thing was the opportunity of using the washing machine."


    "So, if I had to choose again, I wouldn't have a doubt!"

  • Review by Rua

    "I will start by saying that I have not trained at this school, rather at another - still in Rishikesh, and under Yashpal Routela. Thus I can vouch for Routelaji as one of the most brilliant, well prepared and well rounded instructors. Compassionate, patient, helpful, dedicated and generous in sharing his vast knowledge - the month with him certainly helped bring my practice - and of my colleagues - to a whole new level. He has vision and he has smarts, he won't throw at you common places, albeit utterly respectful of tradition he will encourage you to make of yoga whatever you will, to suit your own. His classes are physically challenging, but also fun-filled - we had some of the best laughs together; he also never forgets safety in alignment. I can't think of anyone I would have wanted more as my asana teacher. Thank you, guruji."

    "Before joining an intensive 200 Hour yoga alliance certification program i inquired with many school about course curriculum and somehow most of school have similar teaching pattern. Long search but finally selected one. Why to do yoga teacher training at Rishikesh Vinyasa School is summarized here. With my experiences of learning and become a certified yoga teacher I would like to share with you. The nutshell if you are serious about yoga teacher training course and becoming a yoga teacher then you should look at points below rather than comparing the fees:Quality of teachersCourse curriculum / course contentsTeacher student ratioInternational validity of the certificateFeedback from the ex-studentsPost course supportCourse compliance with International standardsThere are many yoga ashrams / schools providing yoga teacher training courses for cheap prices especially in Rishikesh, India but most of them are not well managed, teachers are not well qualified, mostly just trying to get students by offering cheap prices. Always make sure to check the feedback from ex-students before enrolling.Best of luck!! My experience with Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School was one of the great learning experience and finally i am teacher. Thank you team at Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School."
